Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007 Peter G B McNeill and Morag Jack The law surrounding adoption in Scotland has undergone some recent changes, especially with the introduction of the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007. The Act introduces a completely new order, a Permanence Order, which can be granted in respect of a child who can no longer live with their family. The Act also increases Local Authorities’ duty to provide services to a wide range of people affected by the adoption process. As a result of the new act, the classes of persons who may adopt now extends to a much wider range, including joint adoption by unmarried couples as well as those in a civil partnership. Overall, the new legislation modernises, improves and extends the system of adoption in Scotland and anyone dealing with adoptions will need to fully understand it. In response to this need, Peter McNeill and Morag Jack have prepared a 4th edition of Adoption of Children in Scotland, which provides a comprehensive account of the law of adoption in Scotland. All relevant legislation is dealt with, particularly the Adoption and Children (Scotland) Act 2007, as well as the associated rules of court and statutory instruments, and the practice of adoption in court. Adoption of Children in Scotland, 4th edition will be of great value to the legal profession, adoption agencies and social workers, as well as students and academics of this legal area.
